article imageBob Dylan predicts 'Obama by a landslide'

By Layne Weiss     Nov 6, 2012 in Politics
As he was wrapping up his concert in Madison, Wisconsin Monday night, Bob Dylan predicted that Barack Obama would win Tuesday's presidential election in a "landslide."
The legendary artist stopped midway through his song "Blowin in the Wind" to tell the crowd "we tried to play good tonight since the president was here today,"The Associated Press reports. He then said he thinks Obama will be victorious Tuesday. Don't believe the media," he said. "I think it's going to be a landslide." He then proceeded with the song as the crowd cheered.
President Obama was joined by rock n roll legend Bruce Springsteen earlier in the day for a campaign rally in Madison. Springsteen opened the rally with the song "No Surrender." He also sang "The Promised Land" and "Land of Hope and Dreams" before a crowd of around 18,000 people, Rolling Stone reports.
The Obama campaign was questioned about using "celebrity glitz" rather than "substance" to get people to vote for him Tuesday, the Express UK reports. Obama spokeswoman Jen Psaki laughed and said, "I think Bruce Springsteen might be offended by you calling him glitzy."
The President also made a campaign stop in Columbus, Ohio today where he was joined by Hip-Hop mogul, Jay-Z. Hov performed "99 Problems But a Mitt Ain't One," Yahoo News reports.
Obama also visited Des Moines, Iowa Monday where he made an emotional speech to around 20,000 people.
"This is where our movement for change began. Right here," Obama said according to The Washington Post.
On his last night of campaigning for re-election, Obama returned to the city where it all began. The city where he beat Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Iowa caucuses. The President and First Lady wanted to show their gratitude to the state of Iowa for their faith in him. That faith launched Obama's first term as President of the United States.
Michelle fondly recalled celebrating Malia's birthday in Pella, Iowa, as well as a holiday party where Barack's face had been carved in butter.
"We still talk about that at Christmas," she told the crowd.
The President shared his own memories. "You welcomed me and Michelle into your homes and you picked us up when we needed a lift," he said. "To all of you that have lived and breathed the hard work of change, I want to thank you."
